Pastor's Weekly Email

October 18, 2019

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7)

GBC Family,

Are you looking forward to this weekend? There may be many reasons you are anticipating the weekend and I trust the opportunity to worship our Lord with your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ is the opportunity you are most anticipating. The weekly occasion for the church to gather and worship on the Lord’s day provides a wonderful opportunity to corporately express our love for the Lord. (Matthew 22:37) Would you join me in praying for the church as we look forward to gathering on Sunday to worship our Lord. I will be continuing in a series of messages entitled "Let’s Go Fishing" to challenge the church to share, present, and live the message of the gospel.

Homecoming Sunday is just a little over a week away. Sunday, October 27 will be a day of worship, celebration, remembering, reconnecting, and fellowship. Please invite folks in sphere of influence especially former members, family, and neighbors to this special day in the life of Grace Baptist Church.Your help is needed to prepare for a great homecoming in the following ways…
